Welcome Postdoctoral Scholars

Postdoctoral scholarship is an important stage in the transition from being a graduate student to launching a career as an independent researcher in your chosen discipline. In collaboration with a supervising faculty mentor, postdoctoral scholars take part in the intellectual life of the university through advanced research, training and engagement with graduate students.

The Office of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies formally acknowledges the key role played by postdocs in achieving the goal of increasing the quality and excellence of research and scholarship at the University of Guelph.
